    Okay, the ™ was sort of cool in the beginning, now it's just starting to get annoying. Can we PLEASE stop with this already?

    It's just So Much Fun™ to type the trademark symbol On A Mac™ because it's Really Easy™ unlike on Windows® XP™ where you have to remember really confusing Alt-codes.

    I think someone is having a caffiene withdrawal.

    Note: I would have added a 'TM' symbol on there, but since I am typing this on a PC I don't want to have to go and figure out the bloody Alt-code.

    Agreed. It means nothing. it won't change anything. But I'm not a fan.

    How in the world do you do the (brb - gotta go to Character Map...stupid Dell...)
    ^TM(character map won't work;)), or any other symbol on a Mac? I haven't figured that out yet.

    And, back on topic: I don't really mind the ^TM threads too much, but there are a few too many - lets tone down on them a bit, okay?

    I like the ™. It implies ownership, authority and power. I wish it was used more often.

    You're being sarcastic right? Cuz that's the only thing I can think of. Otherwise, you need a chill pill. Seriously man, chill. ®

    I did this ™ on a PC without using any alt-codes ... select™, Ctrl-C™, Ctrl-V™, in case you're wondering.

    Soo? What the secret? I have to go to the Special character menu.

    I don't really see the point of using ™ though, are OP's trademarking their threads? Do they plan to sell the thread as either a good or service? It just doesn't make sense.
    The same goes for ©, but at least copyright makes more vocabularistic (!?) sense than trade mark.
